Kents Hill Orchard is set to host a Classic/Fancy Auto Show from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, during the peak of McIntosh season for picking apples at the orchard at 1625 Main St.

The rain date is Sunday, Sept. 18. All makes and models of cars are invited.

McIntosh became Maine’s number one heritage apple, having survived all other Maine apples in the 1933-34 frozen winter. “Many classic cars on display will remember that year,” said Brent St. Clair, show manager, in a news release.

“Car enthusiasts who come and display their classic cars will take in the beautiful views of the western mountains and get a free bag to pick apples,” said according to John Harker, operator of the orchard. “Our 40-year-old McIntosh trees are loaded with fruit, and we will also have a special low price for families interested in picking whole trees for making cider, apple sauce and pies.”

“We also expect a number of newer models of fancy and sporty cars,” said Steve Woodsum, one of the sponsors and owner of Great Northern Motor Works.

St. Clair will be displaying his 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider.

There is no entrance fee.
